Bergeron is the heart and soul of that team.
Chara is the leader, Thornton as well is a vet leader.
Bergeron is the identity of the team though, his defense first approach is exactly what Julien preaches, he is probably Claude's ideal forward.
His post season play was spectacular, he deserves all of this especially playing through the punctured lung!
He will be 36 when the contract ends, he is in his prime, has been with the team since he was 18.
I am not a fan of 8 year deals, but if their is a max contract player in that group of forwards it is Patrice.
